Buckeye Grove will be getting a little bigger after this year thanks to Ohio State center Michael Jordan.

Jordan, a junior, makes the third straight time an Ohio State center has won been named a first-teamer. Pat Elflein was recognized in 2016, followed by Billy Price last year. Interestingly enough, all three players did not begin their careers at the center position. In the case of Jordan, he was moved from left guard after Price graduated last year.

Jordan made an immediate impact at Ohio State, becoming the first true freshman to start at Ohio State since all the way back when Orlando Pace did it in 1994.

Here’s what SI had to say about Jordan:

“The fallout from a turbulent season in Columbus was rarely visible when the offense was on the field, as Jordan helped first-year Buckeyes quarterback Dwayne Haskins direct traffic and made offensive coordinator (and interim turned full-time head coach) Ryan Day look good.”
